General Insurance Claims

Shine Lawyers NZ provide help to those who've had claims unfairly refused

Many insurance companies go to great lengths to avoid paying out clients covered under their policy when things go wrong. When this happens, it’s easy for those affected to feel helpless and suffer severe financial and emotional hardship.

Shine Lawyers NZ provide help to those who’ve had insurance claims unfairly refused or declined. Our lawyers are experts in bringing justice when insurance companies wrongly decline claims. We have experience in getting clients the result they are looking for throughout New Zealand and the South Pacific. Our team always goes above and beyond in what we do and, most importantly, we’re not afraid to take on the big insurance companies.
